STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Maybe you're spending this summer at the beach, away from e-mail or the phone. But by next summer, you'll never have that trouble again. Ocean City, New Jersey is planning a citywide wireless network. Tourists pay a $6 access charge. They'll get electronic wristbands that pay for access to the beach, and the food, and to parking. And no matter where you are in Ocean City, you will also be able to access all the e-mail from that office you were trying to escape.
It's MORNING EDITION.
